How We Help

At Movers & Makers we understand that receiving a diagnosis of a Learning Disability can quickly become an emotional and financial burden. In most cases, there will be a need for intervention, and many of these can be costly, regardless of your child's diagnosis and/or developmental stage. 

 

There are many public resources that may be available to you, depending on your specific circumstances. Additionally, several medical insurance plans provide some services to children. However, despite our communities best effort to provide services, there is often a gap between what is available, and what the child needs.

 

Movers & Makers is committed to serving our community and fellow parents to provide emotional and financial support to help fill the gap.

**We recommend you check the benefits plan summary for your insurance plan to see if services are covered prior to contacting Movers & Makers for assistance.
